In this slidecast, Convey CEO Bruce Toal presents: HC-2: Next Generation Hybrid Core.

Convey’s innovative hybrid-core architecture pairs classic Intel processors with a coprocessor comprised of FPGAs. Particular algorithms—DNA sequence assembly, for example—are optimized and translated into code that’s loadable onto the FPGAs at runtime, greatly accelerating performance-critical applications. The new Convey HC-2 systems increase application performance 2-3 times over previous generations of Convey servers and orders of magnitude over commodity servers.
